Controlling Depth Reports and Surveys

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for reporting the conditions of Federally maintained navigation channels. The New York District performs periodic surveys throughout our geographic area of responsibility to determine channel conditions. This information is then reported to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other government offices. The minimum controlling depths are shown by channel segments on standard forms, along with notes on the location of shoals and other critical information. Waterway users interested in channel conditions may refer to the most recent Reports of Channel Conditions provided below.

The New York District is in the process of converting vertical datums used on its Controlling Depth Reports and Surveys from a local datum to the current epoch of MLLW (1983-2001). This process will take several years to complete. Mariners and other users of this information are advised to pay particular attention to the referenced datum.
